Rafael Benítez: No guarantees over my Newcastle United future

Newcastle Agree To Sign Jordan Lukaku On Loan -

Benitez, who is out of contract at the end of the season, says the club are still active in the transfer window, but admits he is unsure if they will sign anyone before Thursday's deadline.

The Spaniard has grown increasingly frustrated at the club's inability to compete in the transfer market and has frequently clashed with its hierarchy over their failure to strengthen the squad.

The brother of Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku, Jordan Lukaku's move to Newcastle has failed after his medical, according to Sky Sports.

Asked if he could guarantee he would not walk out before the end of the campaign, Benitez said: "No, I cannot guarantee anything".

But as he prepared his players for Tuesday night's clash with champions Manchester City 48 hours before the window is due to close, he did not have a single new face on board and was cutting an increasingly exasperated figure.

"I am a professional and I want to do things well".

Benitez was asked if he felt deals would be done before Thursday.

Lukaku has been linked with a move to the Premier League at various points over the last 18 months, but no switch has materialised.

"What I have to give back to the fans is this: I am a professional, I will work hard and I will try to do my best".
